the bug - Poison Dart (Skream / South Rakkas Crew Mixes)
A pretty solid signing for Ninja Tune we reckon, and with tracks like 'Poison Dart' from they really can't go wrong. There's a Bristolian element to it, a breath of Smith 'n Mighty, a hint of early Massive Attack in those rolling doom-laden basslines, and then there's Warrior Queen's boisterous vocal. Rarely has the much lauded emcee sounded so on point as she does here, tripping in and out of The Bug's gargantuan production and ear-bashing basslines to come up with a track that would put most dubstep producers to shame. Somewhere in there I can hear links to Substance's killer remix of Monolake's 'Alaska' - yep it's that good. On the flip we've got mixes from Mad Decent playaz the South Rakkas Crew and DJ Baku. The Skream remix affirms his status as the king of the dubstep dancefloor, digitally enhanced synthesized bass sounds replace the grittiness of the Bug's version and Skream's trademark skittering beats (enhanced by the usual gunshots) keep the feet moving and the head nodding. The real added bonus here though is the Bug's 'Stampin' which is more tantalising evidence that the forthcoming full-length is going to be something to mark on the calendar. Massive!
